September Event Recap
Joint Political Affairs and Issues Committee Meeting, Sept. 14th
This month, we met with Political Director Tom Ross for a very informative meeting regarding ALL 17 ballot measures facing California voters this November. There are a number of hot button issues this election year, and after much review and discussion, the Committee made the following recommendations:
- SUPPORT: Prop. 54 (Legislative Transparency) – Requires a bill to be in print and published online for 72 hours before the Legislature can vote on it.
- OPPOSE: Prop. 55 (Prop. 30 Income Tax Extension) – Would extend the temporary personal income taxes by 12 years. Prop. 57 (Repeal of Prison Sentencing) – Would allow for prisoners convicted of nonviolent felonies to be given early release. Prop. 59 (Advisory Vote on Citizens United) – Would ask voters whether there should be a federal constitutional amendment to overturn the ruling in Citizens United vs. Federal Election Commission. Prop. 67 (Bag Tax) –Would ban plastic bags and places a 10 cent tax on paper bags that goes to grocers. Prop. 65 (Redirects Bag Tax to Environment) – Would redirect bag tax to the Wildlife Conservation Board to support environmental projects.
***We are currently working to finalize our NMOC Voter Guide and should have that to you within the next few days!
